about

Groundless is the result of uncountable hours of work and joy under the belief that music has to be created merely out of emotions, in order to touch the mind of the listener and the creators themselves.

Producing this recording involved the hands and the help of many people, not all of them listed here, who supported this project in different ways to make it possible, sometimes not even aware of it. To all of you, we are very grateful.

We hope you enjoy this album as much as we do. Your donation will serve to support this and future works of groundless music.

Yaacob González García - Violin

Andrea Cogoni - Drums and percussions

Sergio González Cuervo - Soundscapes

All music composed and arranged by Antonio Firinu
Engineered by Sergio González Cuervo at audiotuerto.eu

Produced by Sergio and Antonio in Amsterdam, Cagliari and León.

Groundless Land

I have been too long the other one
who lives inside a shell

and now I’ve found myself again

in the middle of nowhere.
I have been too long pursuing my dreams
but they run faster than me

and now I’ve found where all they went
and I came here to take them back.
Here we arrived in the Groundless Land

ehere there’s no beginning and there’s no end,
everything is clear now inside my head.

I have been too long so far away

from certainty

and now we found each other again

where things are made of melody.

Now for me it’s time to leave

and sail my imaginary cloud

but I will take some seeds from here

and spread them everywhere.
